Simple Floral Background Birthday Card using Build-A-Garden: Japanese Anemone

I started by stamping my images with black ink to create a beautiful floral background for my birthday card. Next, I used my blending tool and applied Altenew Crisp Dye Inks over the layering stencils to easily add color to the stamped anemones. I used here pink inks from Cherry Blossom Color Family, Buttercream and Warm Sunshine from Summer Afternoon Crisp Dye Ink Oval Bundle, along with Cloudy Sky and Nimbus from Tranquility Crisp Dye Ink Oval Bundle.

I decided to keep the front of the birthday card sentiment free and only added a big 40th number to mark the celebration created with Bold Numerals Die Set out of blue cardstock.
